   Oct-10-18 Hort vs O Cvitan, 1994 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Wow! What an amazing surprise--20 Bf2 forcing immediate resignation. I would have loved to see Hort's expression.
   Sep-28-18 A Lazar vs J Smeets, 1998
NM JRousselle: My mamma said, "Get pieces out!". Surely some move such as 12 Nc3 must be better than 12 Bd5 or b4.
   Sep-28-18 C Hanley vs S Brynell, 2001
NM JRousselle: Black's play in this game is amazing--one best move after another.
   Sep-17-18 Hort vs T Biehler, 1987
NM JRousselle: Did Black lose on time? The final position can be liquidated to drawn Q ending.
   Aug-31-18 E Schallopp vs W Paulsen, 1888
NM JRousselle: The position after 43 Kh2 is a very good puzzle position. It is also a good position for those who wish to improve attacking / tactical skills. Spoiler alert: after 43 Kh2 it's Black to play and win.
   Aug-30-18 Gunsberg vs M Lange, 1883 (replies)
NM JRousselle: NBZ, one of the rules of thumb in deciding whether to exchange queens is to look at relative king safety. The player with the safer king (White in this game) often should not trade queens. The engine recommends 32 Qe1, avoiding the queen trade.
   Aug-30-18 G Porreca vs T van Scheltinga, 1950
NM JRousselle: Beginning with move 35, Black begins to throw away a winning position.
   Jul-30-18 S Volkov vs D Anikonov, 2016 (replies)
NM JRousselle: I like puzzles like this. They really test a player's knowledge of the game. In the puzzle position, White only has 12 LEGAL moves. Pushing the pawn can be dismissed, so with only 11 LEGAL moves, how tough can this be? 2 PLANS come to mind: 1 - place the king on c8(e8) and ...
   Jul-20-18 Flohr vs Capablanca, 1936 (replies)
NM JRousselle: I can't take credit for solving this one. I saw this game many years ago. It's interesting that the tournament report on this game has Euwe kibitzing and causing Capa to err.
   Jul-12-18 N Eliet vs Rozentalis, 2016 (replies)
NM JRousselle: Very instructive. The decisive mistake was the "automatic" recapture with the bishop on move 13. 13 Nc4 was box.
